TOl' FINAL REJ'ORT ANTI-DRUG AND ALCOHOL WQ}tKSHOl'S LOCATION AND A'l"l'ENDA.NCE . CUTR organized and implemented a statewide program of four anti-drug and alcohol workshops. Each workshop was well received and attended. The dates, locations and attendance of the workshops are presented in Table 1. DATES July 18-19 July 2122 July 25-26 July 28 -2.9 TOTAL TABLE 1 Dates, Location and Attendance of Anti-Drug and Alcohol Workshops LOCATION I Panama City Gainesville Ft.

TABLE2 Law Enforcement Guest Speakers WORKSHOP SPEAKER(S) AGENCY Panama City Lt. Larry Contanzo Florida Highway Patrol Gainesville Det Greg Smith Alachua County Sheriff's Office Ft. Laude rdale Trooper Mike Thomas Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Tracy Land Florida Highway Patrol Lakeland Troope r Bruce Hutcheson Florida Highway Patro l EVALUA TION S Evaluations were distributed to participants at each workshop Workshop evaluations were completed by 95 participants Thus, the evaluations represent the opinions of 83% of registered workshop attendees. It should be noted that some of the 95 evaluations received were not fully comple t e d. Also, some workshop attendees did not sign the registratio n sheet. For example, in Panama City, we received one more evaluation sheet than we had peop le registered for the worksh op. For these reasons, the total number of responses vary for different questions on the evaluation. Wherever possible, and when it makes sense to do so r esponse s to evaluat ion questions were combined and reported for all workshops. The few responses reported by individual workshops are clearly indica ted. A blank evaluation sheet appears in Appendi x B. Combined responses for all workshops appear in Appendix C. Indiv idual workshop are organized 'in Appendix D as follows: Panama City, Gainesv ill e, Ft. Lauderdale and Lakeland. QUESTIONS ONE, IWO AND THREE: The first three questions were concerned w i th overall course evalua tion. The responses to the first question indicated that 100% of the responders felt that the workshop met thei r expectations. Questions two and three asked about the objectives of the workshop. A total of 98% of the responders felt that th e objectives of the workshop were clearly stated And, 99% of th e respond ers felt tb at th e course objectives were m et All four workshops were rated a c lear success. QUESTION FOUR: Question four asked about the overall workshop pres entation and support materials All responses were rated on a 1 5 scale with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. The average responses were: Content, 4.6; Instructional materials, 4.6; Instructors, 4.7; Facilities 3.8; Handout mat edal s, 4.6 and Audio Visual materials 4.4. The lowest score, Facilities, was due to the noise from a hotel r enovation project going on while our Ft. Lauderdale workshop was in progress. Another factor was the lack of 2

PAGE 5

adequate (microphones) equipment provided by the hotels. In many cases the speaker was difficult to hear from the back of the room. The overall seores for question f our indica te that the workshops were perceived as a success. QUESTION FIVE: Question five was open-ended, asking for suggestions to improve the workshops. Predictably, responses varied considerably, covering divergent topics such as: provide a free lunch, make the course sh orter, and make the course longer. A total of 57 suggestions yielded the following infonnation. The mos t frequent response dealt with c o urse materials. Seventeen responders wou l d have like to have received copies of the handouts and applicable federal regulations for review in advance of the workshop. There were conflictin g responses about workshop length. Fourteen responders felt that the workshop shou ld ha ve been longer This was the second most frequen t response for course improvement. Two responders felt it could have been shorter. Suggestions for improving the management o f the course incl u ded seven requests to have t h e workshop presented in lock step with the course manual and four resJ?onders who wanted a course syllabus Other suggestions included more role playing, more interaction between attendees, more information on collection procedures, more infonnation on implementation guidelines, more information on the l egal ramifi c ations of implemenling the policy, and more information on federal reporting requirements. QUESTION Sl;K; Question six was anoeher open-ended question asking what part of the workshop was the most helpful to them. Th e large number of comments, 96, indicates the generally high level of satisfaction with tbe workshop presentations. Thirty -five responders indiCated t hat all of the workshop was most helpful. Ten responses indicated the explanation of the laws was the most he lp ful part of the workshop. Eight responses indicated that explanation of the testing and collection procedures was valuable. Six responses praised the p ro vision of sample policy statements and policy discussions. Other comments also indicated favorable perceptions, including fourteen indicating that the handout materials were well received, six that favorably rated the interaction and role-playing sessions, five that liked the speaker comments which supplemented the manual, four who liked the discussions of policy and procedures. three who appreciated the reyiew of the alcohol regulations, two who liked the poiice demonstrations and the reasonable suspicion discussion, and one who favorably rated the discussion of the supervisor's role. QUESTION SEVEN: Question seven was an open-ended question asking what part of the works ho p was least helpful. The 19 responses were varied and therefo re, difficult to categorize. 3

PAGE 6

Three resp6nders didn't care to receive infonnation about the drug testing or collection procedures. Three others didn't care about the consortium information. Three didn't like the role playing scenarios. Another i n dicated that the alcohol video was old and n eeded to be replaced. Anqther d idn't care for the drog awareness information, including the police demonstration. One didn't like the breatbalizer demonstration. One felt no use for the information on forms, the policy information or the record keeping information. One felt the workshop was too long and one felt the workshop was too short. The speaker was criticized by one individual for advocating what was felt to be a controversial opinion. One criticized allowing time for student feedback and discussion. QUESTION EIGIIT: Question eight was a forced choice (yes/no) question asking if the discussion on system policies concerning substance abuse was informative; 100% of the responders indicated yes. QUESTION EICU:IT A: Question eight "A" was an open ended question asking what addiiional information could have been included as a part of the discussion on substance abuse policy. Four responders indicated a desire to have copies of sample policies. Another response indicted a desire for more information on how to write good policy. Other responses reques t ed-more information on system liability, record keeping, contra ctor participation, cost of testing, and which issues were open to collective bargaining. QUESTION NINE : Question nine was a forced choice (yes/no) question asking if the discussion on testing procedures was informative. AU of the responders (100%) indicted yes. QUESTION NINE A: Question nine "A" was an open-ended question asking what additional information cou l d have been inc l uded as a part of the prese n tation on testing procedures. No two responses to this questio n were were the same. The different responses to this question were difficult to classify. The responses were to: include a presentation by MRO; explain the paperwork flow and how n egative tests are processed; give a description of l aboratory forms; provide more samp l e procedures; provide check lists; identify local sources for testing; review sequence of events after a positive test, aod provide a better tie-in for the role-playing activity. QUESTION TEN: Question ten was an open -ended questio n asking the primary occupation of individuals attending the workshop. A total of 88 responses were organized into the following six groups : 35 Transit managers/senior transit managers/managers/directors 21 Transportation coordinators/opera tions personnel 11 Human resources and employee assistance perso nnel 9 FDOT p e rsonnel 6 MRO/physician/registered nurse/medical personnel 6 Attorney/union/contract administration personnel 4

QUESTION ELEVEN THRQUGH 1WENTY THREE: Questions e l even through twenty-three were forced choice (yes/no) questions concerning a pr oposell testing consortium. Th e questions and responses shown in Table 3 indicate several needs which may be solved by the creation of a Statewide drug and alcohol testing consortium. The consorti um would, however need to include policy, plannin g, reporting and implementation assistance as well as provide testing and collectio n services. 11. 12. 13. 14.

Do you feel the need to have 24 hour collection service? Do you feel the need for mobile (on-site) collection service? Do you need online t est results availability? Do you need random selection done for y o ur propert y ? Do you need customized reports designed to report the testing history of your property? Do you require MRO service through a statewide contract? Do you require BAP services through a statewide contract? Do you require assistance in training your supervisors to identify individuals under the influence of alcohol and drugs ? Do you reqllire assistance in training our supervisors to identify individuals under the influence of alcohol and drugs? Does your property currently test for drugs? Does your property currently test for alcohol? l MRO = Medical Review Offttc 2 I!AP l!lnployee AssiSWICO l'JoJ,.,.

Responses v aried from $35 to $40 per !C5tto $500 per year This question was answered on only five evaluation forms and therefore is not felt to be a representative sample of the cost of drug testing. 5

QUESTION 22 N Question 22 "A asked about the cost for alcohol t esting. The two responses were $50 per test and $500 per year. This question was responded to by only two participants and therefore is not felt to be a representative sam ple of !lie cost o f a l co hol testi ng. QUESTION 23: Question 23 asked for the estimated number of safety-s e nsitive persons (emp l oyees and sub-contractors) each system uses that wou l d be required to be tested The answ e rs to this question are at bes t estimates A clo s er approximation would require making individual calls to the human resources department at each pro p erty. There is a n eed to assess their curre nt services a n d plans for service as well a s any limitations as to their ability t o contract for services Table 4 presents responses to question 23 a s edited by CUTR.
